Recently, Lee Min Ho’s official Facebook page saw its total “likes” surpass the five million mark, making him the “most followed” public figure in Korea. He currently tops all Korean celebrities, politicians, and businessmen in terms of total “likes,” reflecting the star actor’s growing popularity and influence in all parts of the world.

“We believe it’s a result of Lee Min Ho actively communicating with his fans through Facebook,” said Lee Min Ho’s agency, Starhaus Entertainment.

Since launching his Facebook page in May 2010, Lee Min Ho saw the number of “likes” increase substantially, as 30,000 to 150,000 fans are estimated to have visited his page on a daily basis. But considering Facebook is not allowed in mainland China, the five million figure may be an understatement in reflecting Lee Min Ho’s global popularity.

Meanwhile, to celebrate the occasion, Lee Min Ho sent a special video message to his fans through his official Facebook page (with subtitles). Enjoy the video below!
